Hymn/Song Information

The homeland The homeland The land




The Homeland! O the Homeland!
The land of souls free born!
No gloomy night is known there,
but only fadeless morn:
Iím sighing for that country,
my heart is aching here;
There is no pain in the Homeland
to which Iím drawing near.


My Lord is in the Homeland,
with angels bright and fair;
No sinful thing nor evil,
can ever enter there;
The music of the ransomed
is ringing in my ears,
And when I think of the Homeland,
my eyes are wet with tears.


For loved ones in the Homeland
are waiting me to come,
Where neither death nor sorrow
invades their holy home:
O dear, dear native country!
O rest and peace above!
Christ bring us all to the Homeland,
of His eternal love.


---Alternative verses---


The homeland! The homeland!
The land of the free-born;
Thereís no night in the homeland,
But aye the fadeless morn:
Iím sighing for the homeland,
My heart is aching here;
Thereís no pain in the homeland,
To which Iím drawing near.


My Lord is in the homeland,
With angels bright and fair;
Thereís no sin in the homeland,
And no temptation there;
The voices of the homeland
Are ringing in my ears,
And when I think of the homeland,
My eyes are filled with tears.


For those I love in the homeland
Are calling me away
To the rest and peace of the homeland,
And the life beyond decay:
For thereís no death in the homeland,
There is no grief above;
Christ bring us all to the homeland
Of His eternal love.
